Somehow the calendar is telling me that tomorrow is October, but I'm still stuck in July. And oh, it was a good July!
It was a month of family reunions, gardening, swimming, and camping. I got to see the house that my Grandmother lived in when she was a little girl (the falling down shack in the pictures below), pick elderberries with her, and then eat the Elderberry Cobbler that she made.
We went to a pie auction, playgrounds, parades, neighborhood firework shows that are just as magical as the big ones and don't let anyone tell you otherwise. Hammocks, cousins, s'mores, many afternoons of exploring creeks and forests, and many more lazy afternoons of good books and family games.
I'm sure there were rough days, tough moments, and all that real life stuff in between. But honestly, looking back through these pictures, I really only remember the good stuff.
It was a perfect July.
